Global British content company
As a wholly owned commercial subsidiary of the BBC, BBC Worldwide (now BBC Studios) monetizes BBC brands and sells BBC programming for broadcast abroad, with the aim of supplementing the income received by the BBC through the licensing fees. In 2018, the company merged with BBC Studios to form a new licensing, production, and distribution company under the BBC Studios name.
